So when do you pick your platform? Is it right after you pledge, or what? I'm using the PayPal version so if anyone used that, it'd be helpful to know. I don't wanna wind up accidentally getting a PC copy since I know my computer wouldn't be able to run the game (since it's being developed with current-gen consoles in mind).

Here's a cool tie-in article by Polygon. Some interesting Castlevania tidbits - the 3D Alucard game was not coming along well, and yeah, his 2D Castlevania projects were canned when they brought on MercurySteam. RIP 1999, at least we'll always have operation akumajo's terrible script in our hearts...

Man fuck Konami up the ass with a bloody flaming pike.

I really hope the game will be much better than the first image posted. I see many people are excited with the art for Miriam but for me Shanoa is waaaay better!

I hope the game development goes well and I don't want the game to look so generic and cheap :(

Man fuck Konami up the ass with a bloody flaming pike.

it was partially Kojima's fault since he supported mercurysteam, which is also to blame trying to cashgrab the Castlevania franchise and just looking to make money (just like how Ninja Theory didn't care about ruining DMC
reputation, they were just after money and fame. not taking care of the franchise's foundations, lore and design.
trolling the fanbase since they will get paid under contract anyways.),
but Kojima pushed Konami to choose MS (a very horrible choice) instead of IGA. 

Kojima overrates western developers and underrated Japanese talent.  Hideo doesn't even care about the Metal Gear series much since MGS3, so Castlevania means nothing to him, he just sees the industry more as a science instead of an art, and MGS is the only thing he understands. ) 

but anyways, this actually worked out better for IGA, since Konami is out of touch with the industry anyways,
and IGA can do more outside of that.  full 3D Castlevania just doesn't have the full team, budget and resources to do it right, so 2D and 2.5D are much more adaptable to IGA's style, and the greatest in the series are 2D.

You see even legendary series like Street Fighter use 2.5D instead of full 3D.  can full 3D be better for the series?
it can be, but it could be at the expense of the series gameplay fundamentals and level design strengths.

You'll receive emails. Kickstarter have some plugins for the post-fund phase that handle this type of thing. You (probably in this case) can up your pledge, even.

I know that 2.5D games can look good. We just need to know which 2.5D game visual they are striving to achieve.

Miriam looks awesome, she could kind of pass for Shanoa's long lost sister.   ;D

plus Miriam can main a sword AND whip, so she's already one of the most badass and coolest IGAvania characters ever.

I think people shouldn't have their production value expectations too high.

fans should be glad this will look better than than CotM, HoD, AoS, DoS, PoR and OoE.

it would be nice if they make it darker and grittier like SOTN and the others, with more mature color tone,
but overall I think that screen doesn't really show the full atmosphere, since those floors and ceiling are naturally
bright due to the reflective material they are composed of, but looking at the rest of the background, it does look
pretty dark themed.   

 At least it isn't super deformed like Phantom Breaker Battlegrounds or Syd Valis.   ;D


but are the developers really the same developers that helped with MN9?  do people think the MN9 budget conspiracy
might be tied to that developer?  Is it a smart move to choose that developer?  They aren't a shady developer are they?  They might bill IGA more money than they deserve. 

 If they are bad they better not treat IGA like a scapegoat if some conspiracy happens.
Whose fault really was it for what happened to MN9 anyways?  was it related to that devleoper? 
Inti Creates or whatever they are called.

Don't get me started on MN9 though, for everything it was promised and how much it made it looks like a big disappointment. I was raising like 100 eyebrows when they announced the cartoon franchises before the game was even finished, left a bad taste in my mouth. That and having to cut out being able to steal parts/transformations from enemies and not bosses due to budgeting? Yeah, nah.

Yeeeaaaah.  Seeing what one man could do (Axiom Verge), and various other teams on a smaller budget could crank out, seeing MN9 was jarring.  I'm trusting this because IGA is the producer and has his goals and funding set at a realistic level.  2.5D does have me weary, but what he's said (and as much as I love Nintendo, excluding it for now so that the game will be good looking instead having to possibly scale it down so that it runs on everything) put me at ease.  To be honest, I'm sad some people won't pledge yet based solely on IntiCreates being involved and MN9 instead of IGA being the lead and pretty damn good with making games on a budget, reused sprites be damned.

I couldn't imagine a metroidvania looking like MN9 honestly: the castle would look bare and bland.  Even DXC looked better than that.

I haven't pledged because I want to see gameplay first. The game is absolutely going to get funded, I respect IGA and trust him but I need to see the game first before I get truly excited.
